Day 1
Bristol Avonmouth, UK, England

Bristol is the UK’s eighth most populous city and is home to a number of attractions and a unique culture. The city’s cruise terminal provides a gateway to the world, but those travelling from further afield to get to Bristol should definitely take the time to fully appreciate the plethora of interesting sights and landmarks. The Old City is home to a network of cobbled streets which will guide you to a range of fascinating medieval buildings. The harbour reflects the maritime tradition of Bristol, with the first iron-hulled, steam-powered passenger liner – Brunel’s ss Great Britain – beautifully preserved in dry-dock.

Rouen, France

The capital of the region of Normandy, Rouen lies along the River Seine, just 75 miles from its entrance on the English Channel. Rouen is perhaps most famous for being the site of the trial of Joan of Arc. Rouen also boasts a wealth of gothic architecture, which has named it the nickname “city of a hundred spires”. The most notable buildings are the spectacular Cathedrale Notre Dame and the Eglise St. Maclou, which is home to some of the finest wood carvings in France. Until the 19th century, Rouen was also the main seaport in France and is still a pleasure to sail to and from, with a varied and beautiful surrounding scenery, full of cliffs, forests, chateaux and abbeys.
